I discovered a place called Sedbergh (http://www.sedbergh.org.uk/) last week on holiday, which is marketing itself as a book town like Hay.

Westwood books had a good collection of children's books - no EBD in last week, but the woman did say that they get some which tend to sell quickly.

The Bookseller had in a few CS paperbacks, and a decent collection of other GO hardbacks.

There's a fab second-hand bookshop in Cromer, on the Norfolk coast, in the street on the same side and a bit further down from the Church of St Peter and St Paul - the biggest church in the centre! - but unfortunately I can't remember the name. Grrrr. I got paperbacks of Feud and New Mistress but there were others and some hbs - Highland Twins among them. Does anyone know what I'm talking about - have the name or live nearby? I'd definitely reccommend it, haven't got time to google it now to check details. *Unhelpfully trying to be helpful!*

Rose's Books
(Steve & Maria Goddard)
Specialists in Rare and Out-Of-Print Children's and Illustrated Books
14 Broad Street, Hay-on-Wye, HR3 5DB
Tel: 01497 820013. Fax: 01497 820031
Web: www.rosesbooks.com. Email: enquiry@rosesbooks.com

They had the illustrated books behind LOCKED glass units and they looked really good. I didn't ask to look at them, so I wouldn't like to be quoted on this but I should imagine they're late 1800s/early 1900s, the sort of books "children only looked at on a Sunday afternoon" (I think I've heard this quoted in other children's stories before now).

Whoever happens to live near this shop is in for a treat.

I was in Hay-on-Wye at Easter, escaped from the rest of the people I was with and spent a looooooooong time lusting over those books in Rose's Books.

Ended up having a fab conversation with a lady who must have been about 80 about CS books and KM Peyton :D

I think I prefer the The Children's Bookshop just down the road from Hay-on-Wye though. Teensy bit more affordable and the woman who owns it is lovely.

Which shops had all these lovely hardbacks? I was there about 6 weeks ago and only found two shops with any hardbacks (or even paperbacks, for that matter) and then only around half a dozen each.

It's a while since I was there - but I found lots of hardbacks in:

Rose's Books (very expensive)

The Children's Bookshop - which is just outside Hay and is marginally less expensive and very very friendly

Ah, that would explain it. I wasn't very well the day I went and apparently stopped just short of discovering Rose's Books (so someone was telling me the other day). Must try again.

www.greenmetropolis.com - UK only, all books £3.75, and quite good for selling your own things.
Also, I discovered www.bookmooch.com, which is a bookswapping site and is worldwide, and I think it's really good.
Oh, and www.swapshop.co.uk - swapping of books, cds, games and dvds. UK only.

Hope it's okay for me to add these? If not, please delete.

I adore The Children's Bookshop. The lady that runs it is wonderful, we were in there for ages nattering to her.

To add to Dawn's list, I noticed a few of the bookshops had paperbacks and there were quite a few EBD hardbacks in one of the bookshops opposite the castle. I don't remember the name of the shop but it had quite a lot of CS hardbacks in the window which were pretty reasonably priced and some extremely expensive ones in the glass cases inside ( nearly £400 for a first edition of Fardingales :shock: )

It's becoming more and more apparent that I'm going to have to go back an explore further!

Alison, their website is www.childrensbookshop.com/index.shtml

It's on the road just outside Hay-on-Wye. Lovely, lovely shop. I may be going back there myself in November if I ever decide on the location for my holiday.

One of my ex-pupils, Chris Harding, is now working part-time as a book dealer. He is hoping to branch out from TV books into children's lit, especially GO.

Give him a bit of time to sort himself out, then text on 07788 554758.
